O’s Notes: Composer Jessica Jones plays tenor sax, piano. Her husband Tony Jones also writes and plays tenor sax. They represent half of the Jessica Jones Quartet and together they play a series of duets, sax/piano and sax/sax. We enjoyed the entangled saxy “Bird’s Word”, and the romantic “I Thought About You” & “Oliver’s Leftovers”. While there is some creative improvisation as on “Loose Talk, Part 2”, the duo plays more modern jazz than the quartet on Hearing Into the Future.
